Melodrama – Luxembourg & Dayan

MELODRAMA, Act 1: London
24 June – 20 August 2016

MELODRAMA is an exhibition in two acts taking place between Luxembourg & Dayan’s London and New York gallery spaces. The show includes seven sculptures and a series of photographs that function as characters in a melodramatic play. Cloaked under commonplace appearances, the works perform dramatic attitudes, generate heightened emotions, and pervade pathos into the gallery space.

Act I: London. Pino Pascali’s ‘fake sculpture’ Coda di Delfino (1966) seems to have already escaped the gallery into the wall leaving nothing more than a trace of its tail. Maurizio Cattelan’s Untitled, taxidermied horse (2007) follows Pascali’s dolphin with a leap of its own, into the opposite wall of the gallery. The plot thickens with Fischli & Weiss’s inanimate black rubber Heart (1987), which lies still on a pedestal, hidden and over- looked like a character in one of Beckett’s plays; the show, however, must go on. Finally, a series of metic- ulous photographs by Franco Vimercati from his Ciclo Zuppiera (1983) generate, as the saying goes, ‘a storm in a tea cup’. These black and white photographs of a soup terrine transform a domestic object into a tragic and melancholic timeless diva.

In New York from 14 July – 17 September, the scene is set with Vincenzo Gemito’s 19th Century bronze bust placed in an unpredictable dialogue with a Jeff Koons cast bronze sculpture. At the same time, Urs Fischer faces a work by Richard Serra, each experimenting with weight and balance – a solid grounding facing precarious uncertainty. End of Act Two.

MELODRAMA was conceived in collaboration with curator Francesco Bonami with the aim to examine structures of exaggerated narratives and performativity in the medium of sculpture. Following the gallery’s recent survey of Alberto Giacometti’s pre-war sculptures in London, and a show of César’s works from the 1960’s in New York, MELODRAMA is the third exhibition in Luxembourg & Dayan’s season of sculptural investigations, a project that traces the blurry line that lies between materiality and imagination in the realm of sculpture.

ILIOKATAKINIOMUMASTILOPSARODIMAKOPIOTITA
Andrea Lissoni, ed.
Texts by Jens Hoffmann, Andrea Lissoni, and Luca Lo Pinto

This book was created in conjunction with Micol Assaël’s solo exhibition “ILIOKATAKINIOMUMASTILOPSARODIMAKOPIOTITA”, curated by Andrea Lissoni at Pirelli HangarBicocca (Milan, January 31 – May 4, 2014). It brings together, for the very first time, all of the work made by the artist between 1999 and 2014, offering a detailed, in-depth look at her practice.

Micol Assaël’s entire oeuvre is characterized by the use and juxtaposition of different media: drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, video and sound. Her works often have a complex and at times precarious relationship with the variables (size, lighting, temperature, smell) of the setting that houses them. Each one is analyzed in an entry containing a description of the work, a chronicle of its evolution and an outline of its exhibition history.

Wang Yuyang
Tonight I shall meditate upon that which I am

Tonight I Shall Meditate Upon That Which I Am is the first bilingual monograph on the work of Chinese artist Wang Yuyang. The book delves into Wang’s practice, focusing particularly on his eponymous solo show at the Long Museum in Shanghai in 2015. It features contributions by an international roster of writers, including Beijing-based artist and curator Bao Dong, Director of CAC Shanghai Zhang Ga, CUNY Distinguished Professor David Joselit, Flash Art co-publisher Helena Kontova, Stanford University Professor Pamela M. Lee, and writer and curator Robin Peckham.

The book’s title is taken from Wang’s eponymous work executed in 2008 — a colossal sculptural wreckage which, according the artist, was evidence of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module disintegrating upon landing or during the voyage home. This work alludes to a future that sees its twilight in the smoldering ruins, a future conceived in the overlapping of the “that” in “I” and the “I” in “that.” “That which I am” conjugates the subject and the object, conflating the inanimate and the soulful and suggesting an emerging relationship between things and humans. This foreshadows much of the artist’s recent work, providing a conceptual clue to understanding his magnificently uncanny creations.

“The Project” is an on-going series created by Sander Dekker from 2011 onwards. He chooses people he admires as his subjects: outgoing, spontaneous and always a bit eccentric. His work is impromptu in the sense that he often shoots at locations he has never visited before, meeting his models just before the photo session and working from zero concept. The energy which is created there in that moment, is what Dekker’s work is all about. Spontaneity and improvisation are therefore crucial, often resulting in surprising crops and spectacular compositions.

The series of portraits in this book, which include Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevic and many other Moscow citizens, were created by a machine: a facial recognition system recently developed in Moscow for public security and border control surveillance. The result is more akin to a digital life mask than a photograph; a three-dimensional facsimile of the face that can be easily rotated and closely scrutinised.

What is significant about this camera is that it is designed to make portraits without the co-operation of the subject; four lenses operating in tandem to generate a full frontal image of the face, ostensibly looking directly into the camera, even if the subject himself is unaware of being photographed.

The system was designed for facial recognition purposes in crowded areas such as subway stations, railroad stations, stadiums, concert halls or other public areas but also for photographing people who would normally resist being photographed. Indeed any subject encountering this type of camera is rendered passive, because no matter which direction he or she looks, the face is always rendered looking forward and stripped bare of shadows, make-up, disguises or even poise.

Co-opting this device, Broomberg & Chanarin have constructed their own taxonomy of portraits in contemporary Russia. Echoing August Sander’s seminal work, Citizens of the Twentieth Century, Broomberg & Chanarin have made a series of portraits cast according to professions. But their portraits are produced with this new technology, with little if any human interaction. They are low resolution and fragmented. The success of these images is determined by how precisely this machine can identify its subject: the characteristics of the nose, the eyes, the chin, and how these three intersect. Nevertheless they cannot help being portraits of individuals, struggling and often failing to negotiate a civil contract with state power.

This book is the result of a series of encounters, interactions and conversations between Broomberg & Chanarin and the photography collections at the Library of Birmingham made possible by a commission from GRAIN and the Library with support from the Arts Council of England.

Roe Ethridge
Sacrifice Your Body

Roe Ethridge’s practice is that of a restless maverick and his constantly evolving visual sensibility has spawned a myriad of copyists in what has become known as ‘the new school of synthetic photography’.

In this his latest artist book, Ethridge conflates a rich array of photographic tropes, combining personal documentary images made in western Palm Beach County, his mother’s childhood home, with surreal collage works, and a series discarded from a Chanel fashion shoot. These are interwoven with what appears to be a carefully directed scene depicting a teeth-white Durango SUV sinking into and then being retrieved from a canal. The clash of visual styles, histories and meaning establish a flatline of dissonance underscored by the touchline admonition of the neon title – SACRIFICE YOUR BODY.

Ethridge’s storytelling invokes a sense of discomfit akin to David Lynch’s film-making, a lucid undermining of veracity and morality and the ingrained materiality that underpins American life.

Roe Ethridge, born in 1969 in Miami, Florida, lives and works in New York. His work has been shown extensively at institutions around the world, including MOMA/PS1 (2000), Barbican Center, London (2001), Carnegie Museum of Art (2002), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2005), The Whitney Biennial (2008), Museum of Modern Art, New York (2010), Les Recontres D’Arles, France (2011). Solo exhibitions include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Garage, Moscow, and Le Consortium, Dijon, France (curated by Anne Pontegnie). In 2011 he was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.

Breath Paintings
Produced by MOSTYN, Wales UK and the generous support of P420 Gallery Bologna

This book focuses on a selection of works from the series Radical Writings produced in the 1980s and 1990s. In these works the artist links her breathing to the gesture of writing, repeating a single action: drawing a line corresponding to one single breath. The striking blue paintings on canvas open up a discussion on language and signs, and on the authority of the written word that is constantly challenged as a vehicle of power.

This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition Irma Blank: Breath Paintings, MOSTYN, Wales UK (15 November–1 March, 2015)
